  2. That look doesn’t work on all heads & faces. To those who are bothered about the article saying “black women”, get a life! The article is about black women’s hair and shaving it off or cutting it short. Save the race tantrums for the political pages.

  3. I agree…black women are often defined and criticized by our natural hair! We’re the only race that if we have long hair it’s assumed to be weave, if you have loose curly hair you have to be mixed, if you have kinky hair it’s “nappy”…put these chemicals in your hair vs learning how to care for it in each natural state, black women are the only women that have to learn to “accept” their hair…it would be a freeing experience at the very least!

  4. I use to wear weaves and wigs all the.. After i let go and cut my hair down even which made it short i realize u don’t need weave or long hair to valid u as a person. I love my short hair

    1. Yes to all of this!!!

      I had been wearing all manner of weaves for years. I’m 7 days into
      This big chop life and I couldn’t be happier. Letting go my fixation with having my hair always “Done” is freeing. Plus I’m going to be saving a ton of money now!

  5. I have shaved mine as well and it is the most empowering feeling you can get. I have done everything under the sun to this hair. Your hair usually tells a story about you in some form or stage in your life. I make hair changes due to my life events.

  6. what does short hair have to do with being black? White woman or Hispanic or Asian women won’t feel liberated with short hair? Race pandering in America is too much!

    But why? What does this prove. Does that make us less black?

  8. Yes it is totally freeing! I have cut all of my hair off 4 or 5 times! Totally renewing!

  9. I agree 100% a few years ago I cut all my hair off and went and got a bald fade. I felt so liberated so free and so much more like me. I never went back. I’ve never grown my hair long ever again and I doubt I ever will. I prefer short hair it’s me. And as for men not liking shorthair, my man doesn’t care one way or the other how long or short my hair is, and we’ve been together almost 17 years.

  10. It’s very freeing and for me, was very representative of a particular point in my life journey.

  11. maybe because all women aren’t u… I don’t feel the need to cut my hair to be free of her a sense of self! My hair is not my life

  12. Listen if u wanna be bald congrats but shaving my head has nothing to do with me feeling liberated and free . That’s why everyone isn’t shaving their heads, do u thou

  27. Yeah did this when I turned 40…hated the cut on me and grew it out BUT it did make me appreciate the versatility of rocking my natural hair. I’ve been natural going on 4 years now after 3 years of relaxed hair once my hair grew back.

  28. What’s liberating varies from person to person. I agree Elu HB, I would never wear my hair that short because it’s not for me. But I can see how it could be liberating for others. To each its own.

    Many ppl feel your crown is your temple and it holds a lot of pain sometimes bad spirited roots and cuttin your hair rids u of the negative energy put out in the universe. It’s deeper than the appearance

    I was a faithful roller wrap girl. One day Rihanna inspired me to cut it all off. Havent wanted to rock the same style since. Cutting my hair definitely made me expand my horizons on hair styles

  33. I cut mine. Never going back.

  34. Whenever I cut my hair I just feel like a new season is coming in my life or I’m about to level up! It makes me feel lighter.. I care less about what others think when my hair is shorter. IDK. It’s hard to put in words but I do think it’s an awesome feeling!! But also agree that not everyone needs to do it! To each it’s own ❤❤

  35. Elu HB says:

    it seems like many people feel that way when they cut their hair really short. I think i see my hair too much as my security blanket to ever do that. The shortest ive cut it is to my neck and i panicked immediately after lol

  36. Monica Law says:

    I’m with you. I been transitioning since February 2016 and I still haven’t cut all of my relaxed ends off. Not comfortable. And I figure it’s my hair I’ll cut when I’m ready.

  41. I cut my hair all off when I caught my then boyfriend in bed with another man. Been short for years with a wig or two here or there.

  42. Been there, done that. Rocked it too. While I wear a different style now, I feel great knowing I look great with or without it–so it’s not a necessity. #justbe

  43. Best decision I hv made. I love me even more. I hv more confidence & I feel sexier.

  44. Yea right.. Wish I never did that at 18.. It was easier but growing it back was really really hard.

  45. Mine has always grown back. Though I cut really short it was not fade.

  46. I would cut mine off for a sense of freedom

    I’ve cut my hair short a couple of times. It’s a nice change, but never like this

  48. Abbi says:

    This is a great piece and one that I totally agree with! I cut my long mane off over 4 years ago just because I had always wanted to try a short cut and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. I started out with a Bruno Mars/Prince type cut, then moved onto a pixie, and now I have a complete low fade (just like the photos of the two actresses mentioned in this post).

    The thought of growing my hair back makes me wince lol; only because I love the ease of having short hair. But I totally understand not every woman wanting to do it because of factors such as the size of their head. However, I still encourage women to take the risk at least once in their life. The experience is as liberating as the author described!

  53. I shaved my head and I love it ❤️ this is my third time doing so all natural ❤️

  54. I believe every woman should do whatever she feels good doing. I personally could not shave my head completely bald. I’ve shaved the left side of my head and people thought I was crazy or said it was cute on me, but that they’d never do it. You have to do what you feel you’re confident doing. Don’t be out here shaving yourself bald “just because” or you will not have the same “freeing” affect like everyone else! I felt bold with my shaved side; I wouldn’t suggest it to anyone that’s not daring.

    We should let our hair define us. She is more beautiful because her features stand out more.

    Well I wouldn’t go bald/shaved… but going short yes!.. you are not defined by your hair… but by whats within!

  57. Best cut ever. I’ve done it like 5 time. So freeing. Plus the male attention is a plus too. They loved it!

  58. It’s only hair and it will grow back. If you find yourself missing it, just go buy a sista girl (wig). My chop was the best decision ever!!!

  59. I’m cut all my hair off five years ago now rocking a shorter look.

  60. Not the way my head is shaped it’s a NO for me. Doctors are amazed once they do a CT scan because I have a extra piece of bone on the back of my head. Not sure of the technical term so FB doctors/nurses or perfectionists stay away from my post.

  61. Yes, it is a great feeling and no maintenance at all. I think that a woman should experience this once in their life. Beauty is within.

  62. I am totally bald and I love it!! Been bald for 8 years now. It’s a wonderful change from weaves and wigs.

  63. Everytime something major happens (usually negative) I cut it off. It’s just hair and it always grows back. It’s crazy how freeing a good haircut can be.

  68. I believe women should wear wtf they want as long as it doesn’t harm them physically or stifle them from loving and showing off their natural selves
